Calprotectin, lactoferrin

Rapid CDIATM Calprotectin, lactoferrin kits are intended for distinguishing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBD) and monitoring IBD disease activity by detecting of calprotectin and lactoferrin in faecal samples.

Differential diagnosis between IBD and IBS is very important because IBD and IBS have very different underlying pathophysiologies and IBD can become life threatening, requiring extensive life long treatment or surgery. Both calprotectin and lactoferrin are substances that are released by WBCs in the stool and are associated with IBD. Their degree of elevation is associated with the severity of the inflammation. They are promising as non-invasive, more sensitive ways of evaluating intestinal inflammation monitoring disease activity.
